    I have been working at Rodale full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're not in upper management, you will do okay for yourself, as long as you're not a project manager. If you can speak up in meetings you will do well for yourself.

    Cons

    Way too much turnover. We always know that a round of layoffs will happen right before Christmas and another smaller round will happen again in February. There are ton's of positions wasted on people who've 'faked it till they make it" They get promotion/raise after promotion/raise, while the hard workers are lucky if they get 1% raises.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real talent, stop unnecessary spending on things, stop abandoning projects after they launch.
